Vacations are meant to be extended periods of time during which stress levels are at their lowest, work mode is switched off, and you can venture out into the world to experience new sights, cultures, and worldly enlightenment! While it is easy to make a list of things to do beforehand, not everyone is conscious of what not to forget. Some of these things may illustrate the obvious. However, these seemingly common sense things can often be forgotten in the excitement of leaving for your trip. In effort to help makes things easier, here are 11 things to never forget before you go away.
1) Forget the Trash
Families often order take out to avoid the extra stress and clean up associated with cooking before heading out of town. Food decomposes rather quickly, and it can leave your home smelling for days. Never forget to take out your trash before leaving your home for any extended period of time. Trash can attract nasty insects, grow harmful bacteria, and leave your living space stinking like a landfill. It is smart to leave your trash on the curb if scheduled waste pickup is only a day or two away. Otherwise, throw your garbage off at a dumpster on your way out or arrange for a friend to do so for you to avoid the lingering stench of rotting produce.
